Lozano spoke with Mexican media outlet TV Azteca Deportes yesterday evening as mentioned by Football Italia, reiterating his motivation to himself forward on the pitch;
“I think I play in a very competitive club, with very good teammates, I have grown a lot due to this. The truth is, I would love to play at a bigger club. I consider myself a very competitive player, with clear goals.
I feel I’m at a good level and I would like to take this new step. However, let’s take one step at a time. Now, I must improve as much as possible, both personally and as a player. Then I hope that, God willing, it can happen.”
The 26-year-old native of Mexico City was a standout performer when he initially made the jump to Europe with Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven from domestic outfit Club de Fútbol Pachuca in 2017, scoring 34-goals in 60-appearances for Boeren across two seasons.
His performances for the Eredivisie outfit eventually had some of Europe’s big guns tracking him, including Manchester United, before he moved to Napoli in 2019 after being named by both the Guardian and FourFourTwo as one of the top 100 footballers in the world in 2018.
Chucky and Co. lose to Canada in CONCACAF qualifying
Despite the desire of Hirving Lozano to push his career to the next level, the Mexican star was unable to stop the recent slide of his national team as El Tri has now slummed to consecutive defeats in World Cup qualifying after last nights 2-1 loss to Canada in Edmonton.
A brace by Besiktas striker Cyle Larin sealed all three points for Canada who now tops the third qualifying phase in CONCACAF, forcing Lozano and Mexico to drop down to third after losing to the United States four days prior.
Lozano earned his 53d cap for Mexico on the night but was unable to add to his current international tally of 15-goals on a snowy night in Alberta province, but has six matches left in qualifying to help get El Tri back on track and remain on course for automatic qualification for Qatar 2022.
